Fatwa Permits Rape of Women in Syria

Yet another Islamic cleric recently made it permissible for the Islamic fighters waging a jihad in Syria—politely known as “the opposition”—to rape the nation’s women.

Salafi Sheikh Yasir al-‘Ajlawni, a Jordanian of origin who earlier lived in Damascus, Syria for 17 years, posted a YouTube video last week where he said he was preparing to issue a “legitimate fatwa” making it legal (in the eyes of Islam) for those Muslims fighting to topple secular president Bashar Assad and install Sharia law to “capture and have sex with” all non-Sunni women, specifically naming Assad’s own sect, the Alawites, as well as the Druze and several others, in short, all non-Sunnis and non-Muslims.

The sheikh used Islam’s legitimate Arabic term for these hapless, non-Muslim women, melk al-yamin, a phrase that appears in Islam’s sacred book, the Koran, and which is simply a reference to non-Muslim sex-slaves.  For example, Koran 4:3 commands Muslim men to “Marry such women as seem good to you, two and three and four… or what your right hands possess.”  Islam’s ulema, or “scholars,” are unanimously agreed that “what your right hands possess” is, according to Islamic law, simply a sex-slave. Linguistic evidence further suggests that she is seen more as an animal or a possession than a human—hence this inhuman fatwa.

Jordanian Sheih Yasir al-‘Ajlawni is certainly not the first cleric to legitimize the rape of infidel women in recent times. Calls to capture and rape non-Muslim women are appearing with increasing frequency from all corners of the Islamic world.

A few months earlier, Saudi preacher Muhammad al-Arifi also issued a fatwa allowing jihadi fighters to engage in “intercourse marriage” with captive Syrian women that lasts for a few hours “in order to give each fighter a turn”—also known as gang-rape.

Then there is Egyptian Sheikh Ishaq Huwaini, who once lectured on how infidel captives, or to use another term from the Koran, ghanima, the “spoils of war,” are to be distributed among the jihadis and taken to “the slave market, where slave-girls and concubines are sold.” He, too, referred to such women as “what your right hands possess,” saying:  “You go to the market and buy her, and she becomes like your legal mate—though without a contract, a guardian, or any of that stuff—and this is agreed upon by the ulema….  In other words, when I want a sex-slave, I go to the market and pick whichever female I desire and buy her.”

Indeed, even some Muslim women advocate the enslavement and rape of fellow (non-Muslim) women.  Kuwaiti political activist, Salwa al-Mutairi,   for instance, is working to see the institution of sex-slavery return.  In a video she posted online, she explained how she once asked Islam’s greatest authorities living in the city of Mecca, the city of Islam, about the legality of sex-slavery and how they all confirmed it to be perfectly legitimate.  According to Mutairi:

A Muslim state must [first] attack a Christian state—sorry, I mean any non-Muslim state—and they [the women, the future sex-slaves] must be captives of the raid. Is this forbidden? Not at all; according to Islam, sex slaves are not at all forbidden. Quite the contrary, the rules regulating sex-slaves differ from those for free women [i.e., Muslim women]: the latter’s body must be covered entirely, except for her face and hands, whereas the sex-slave is kept naked from the bellybutton on up—she is different from the free woman; the free woman has to be married properly to her husband, but the sex-slave—he just buys her and that’s that.

The Kuwaiti activist went on to offer concrete suggestions: “For example, in the Chechnya war, surely there are female Russian captives. So go and buy those and sell them here in Kuwait; better that than have our men engage in forbidden sexual relations. I don’t see any problem in this, no problem at all.”

One can go on and on with more examples.  The point is that last week’s fatwa permitting the jihadi-led “opposition” to target and rape non-Sunni Syrian women is in good company, and certainly not an aberration.

The only aberration seems to be the United States’ wholesale support for self-professed rapists and terrorists—quite laughably, in the name of “democracy.”

      After 1400 years of islamofascist oppression, persecution, murder, rape and slavery to believe in the possibility of an "Islamic Reformation" would seem to me to be a delusional fairytale.

    I hope Salafi Sheikh Yasir al-‘Ajlawni himself gets arrested and is used in the same manner in prison.

      No. The pen is mighter than the sword. We should go to war against Islam. This will have the effect of stigmatizing Islam and Mohammad and humanizing Muslims into the pool of humanity.

      This would be a great time for real statesmen, leaders who are interested in natural law and unalienable rights to emerge on the scene.

      Yes, we will have to kill some Mohammadians, but not all Muslims are true Mohammadians.

      Have you ever considered the idea that maybe many muslimes may know *exactly* what islam is? Do you think most nazis had no idea what nazism was?

  • Jaladhi

    Muslims do not need any fatwa (a religious permission) to rape women. It is in their DNA instilled by Mo/allah and Quran. That is why fatwa or no fatwa, Muslims commit rape all over the world at any chance they get. No woman in any place is safe from them. These demons have no place in any human society!!!

    • rolaaus

      exactly right, which is why the Koran "protects" women by forcing them to be accompanied by a male relative or husband in order to go out in public. Of course, the real problem lays with the men, they are the ones that should not be allowed out in public without a female counterpart … then all the rapes would end!

    Abu Baseer in London: “One of the goals of immigration is the revival of the duty of jihad and enforcement of power over the infidels. Immigration and jihad go together.

    Quran 9:5 “Kill Jews and Christians wherever you find them”.

    The constant calls by Muslim leaders to RAPE, and gang-rape NON-MUSLIM women is one of the MAJOR reasons why not one single Muslim should be allowed to immigrate to Western countries unless they are apostates who need to ESCAPE.

    Founder of Islam, Mohammed: “I have been made victorious with terror”, “Wage war on the infidel and kill them until Islam is dominant” (Quran 8:39)

    Western ruling elites have betrayed us to the uttermost in colonizing our countries with many millions of Muslims who hate us and are eager to obey commands in the Quran and mosques to wage jihad against us and conquer our countries. Human sacrifice is FORBIDDEN by God. Islam calls for the MASSIVE breaking of God's Laws.

    “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah”

    INHUMAN, demonic Muslim monsters continue subjecting Britain’s non-Muslim children to extreme physical and sexual violence.

    In OBEDIENCE to the Quran, devout Muslims are waging war against Britain and Europe and waging RAPE WAR against British children.

    The children lived with the daily horror that there was no one to help them. Appealing to the police made the children’s suffering even worse. It is a nightmare Britain that has been DELIBERATELY created by Britain-hater ruling elites ruthlessly colonizing the nation with millions of infidel-hater Quran-obedient Muslims.

    Which do Western ruling elites regard as a crime? Islamophobia: the fear of Muslim barbarism, or the many and terrible acts of inhuman, Muslim barbarism? British leaders are despicable and EVIL for refusing to protect Britain's children from Muslim MONSTERS. God will judge them!

    Islam is for every culture and every time, there was a time when different cultures/religions attacked and in-salved each other, that time is gone for now, while slavery is not forbidden in Islam, Islamic empire was slave free way earlier than Europe/Asia, they even had a huge impact on buying and freeing slaves from Africa so they can go back to their own home land and spread Islam.

    Yes Islam like any religion have few idiots religious figures, these idiots ones have very limited followers, just because you read about what they say on the net "because it's very stupid" that does not mean they are popular in the Islam world.

      If what you say was true……… Than most of the muslims that come to America and other parts of the world they would not be crying about authorities telling them to take off (what ever you call the cloth thing around the face) for security purposes. Why should they be an exception???
      NO….. We would be "very stupid" if we trust muslims. The koran is the koran and if it says what they preach they have no choice but to follow it, so don't sugar coated!!!

    • rolaaus

      So, let's say there are 1 Billion Muslims in the world, and let's say that 10% of those Muslims are "fundamentalist" and out of those 100 Million 10% of those are "extreme" fundamentalists, that means there are 10 MILLION "idiot ones" out there. That is a higher population than New York, the highest populated city in the U.S. http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0763098.html

  • Syrian-Canadian

    LindaRivera: Go read your own western history about slavery and you will find that the Islamic empire/world was slave free 100 of years before the west reached that point, also if Islam ask Muslims to salve non-Muslims then we would not have any non-muslim living in an Islamic country.

    Muslim believe in Allah, which is Arabic to the word "God" i.e same one you pray for, Muslim should respect other ppl religion, again we do have our share of idiots that don't share this thought that the majority of Muslim around the world hare, but this is typical for all religions/Cultures Just like there will always be.killers, rapist child muleteers everywhere.

    I live in a Western culture and I understand Christians, Jews and ppl who don't even believe in God because i live among them, until you live in an Islamic culture please refer from making judgment, I am sure you will find somewhere in your bible/what ever holy book u believe in some verb that suggest what I just said :)

    Please forgive my English.

    Ye who do not denounce this fatwa will forever pay with your soul and suffer in eternal hell, by your Allah and my God, one world, one love, one type of hate that will never be forgiven. Know ye my name and know that thy time is near the end. Fatwas with no God, and no backing are only the evil desires of the flesh not the true love of God, or your Allah (with one hand and one sword ye will fall with this Jordanian who deserves no mercy for pretending to speak in the name of Allah or my God, no fatwa from love would ever be made in the name of this evil.

      from a MUslim friend of mine who lives in England:
      2:23am
      Mohammad Hamza
      Salam Laurie, first thing I know u a Christian so no doubt u get your material from certain sources. But juz as we as Islam have Muslim bigots in Christianity u have Christian bigots.
      Comments by a so sheikh (clergy) insisting on a fatwa are a reflection of a deep hate of fellow Muslims.
      I don't know who this Jordanian devil is but about 3 months ago a Saudi cleric came out with the idea of something similar when he said the Sunni/wahabist fighters were allowed to release their sexual frustrations by indulging in authorised rape of Shia women & girls providing they were over 13 years of age.
      So these sectarian promoting scum often come out with these insane fatwas which indicated their warped unrecognisable version of Islam.
      The rest of the article was deeply offensive cos it misinterprets & twists rather like these same fools the words of the Quran to do evil things. The word of God lost in a man…

    VERY UNFORTUNAT AND INSANE FATWA HOW COULD WE ALLOW AN INHUMANE ACT AND GIVE IT A SANCTITY.WE SHOULD RAISE VOICE AGAINST THIS IN A COMMON PLATEFORM BECAUSE ITS AN ATTACK ON WOMEN.

  • Rida Ejaz

    After reading this article I would only say that all those who are involved on giving such merciless Fatwas and the one who wrote this Article. Both have gone astray. They are misinterpreting the verses from Holy Quran. Islam is a religion of peace. Those demons who have disguised themselves in the dress of Islam have purchase Hell fire. Just wait got the day of Judgement and acts of every individual will be accounted for. We are creation of our LORD ALLAH. I'm a Muslimsh and have read the verses of Quran which that Article writer has mentioned.
    these verses were revealed by God is order to give protection to those non Muslim women who became war captive. ALLAH has made women physically less strong than men and made a male person a guardian of his family by getting married to a woman. Now when we look back in history, after wars among nations , tribes or countries, most of the women whose sons, husbands, brothers are killed during war, remain alone. Quran instructs the men of victorious nation that they should get married to such homeless women in order to give them protection and all basic rights of living, instead that women may become cause of adultery and become toy in hands of other bad natured men. if your serve, in USA those girls, women who are living alone without a mans protection are more probe to get raped by their own country men. so whatever Quran Instructs to all human beings of this world has some betterment for society. Islam is a religion of peace, and not confined only for Muslims. Only people of understanding can understand it. So called Islamic Scholars and such Research writers are not true representative of Islam. Islam poses great punishment on rape and adultery like sins. May ALLAH show us the right path of guidance . Aameen

    • Jane Doe

      In any Islamic nation, any woman or child may be raped at will, with no repercussions. No other religion in the world proposes the filth that Islam does, but then what should be expected from a sham religion founded by a pedophile? Believe me when I say that if every Muslim were to disappear from the face of the earth tonight, there would be nothing but dancing in the streets all over the world tomorrow. Islamic nations offer NOTHING of cultural value to the rest of the world. If you didn't have oil, you'd already be dead and gone – and it ain't gonna last forever, Haj…

    These men are not Godly, they are evil. Moderate Muslims deny that Quran encourages these interpretations, but it does. Islam is the religion of barbaric pig men. Any nice moderate Muslim should forsake this so called holy book. U can find sensible laws that honor women in the Bible, which Quran in it’s opening chapters claims to be based in. So why not just turn to the Bible. It is forbidden by these self serving filthy beasts in almost every land where they conquer. I know that Israel destroyed many tribes at God’s command when settling the land of Canaan after slavery. BECAUSE these tribes were bestial, even frying their new born on alters to demons. The beheadings, rapes, thievery going on in Iraq only amplify the horror that is Islam. It looks to me that their God is the Devil.
